A mammoth debut album from Russian indie rockers The Slides. 'Soma' is an album indie guitar rock, clearly influenced by britpop and sounding like something between M83 and Oasis.

It was not randomly chosen as the album’s name as the band’s LP is as pleasantly intoxicating, especially, when... Topics: indie, alt, post rock, bfw

It says nothing of the end of an era, but speaks of a time to come, in which some things are similar to... Topics: Aguas tónicas, BFW, indie, rock, argentina
